SOME OF THE GANG IS GETTING BACK TOGETHER FOR ONE AFTERNOON ONLY IN L.A., AND YOU CAN BE THERE!
Patricia Steffy Will Host Showcase for Debut Book “My Letter To Fear” in L.A. in September 2014
— The special one-afternoon only engagement will feature readings from her essay collection—
Los Angeles, CA – August 19 2014 – Writer/Producer Patricia Steffy (Dating in L.A. and Other Urban Myths) published her first book—a collection of essays inspired by her own experiences, as well as experiences of a variety of women she interviewed—and that book will now be turned into a special showcase engagement on Saturday, September 20 2014 at the MACHA Theatre in West Hollywood, California.
“My Letter to Fear: Essays on Life, Love, and the Search for Prince Charming”examines the topics women obsess over—including aging; confidence; relationships; body image; beauty myths and practices; and since we’re in Los Angeles, celebrity. Designed to spotlight the writer and her work, this special showcase event will feature readings of key pieces from the book.
“I was at a point of serious reassessment in my life when I first started writing “My Letter to Fear.” I had just quit my job of nearly 17 years, and for the first time in a very long time I was asking myself what I really wanted to do with my life. Part of the process involved taking a look at the differences between the expectations I had for my life when I was a teenager versus what my adult reality was, and I realized that a lot of people I knew were going through something similar. I think that is what will make this showcase resonate—especially here in Los Angeles where so many are in a constant state of reassessment or rebranding,” Steffy said.

We just put the finishing touches on our behind-the-scenes featurette for our IndieGogo DVD. Here is a sneak peek from it, where filmmakers discuss shooting on location and the importance of LA as a backdrop for the series.
Who is John Galt?
The third part of the Atlas Shrugged trilogy is hitting theaters on September 12th, and the mystery man himself is played by our own Kristoffer Polaha. Check out this teaser trailer that features some first words from the man of the hour.
Bones season 10 is underway but our own Tamara Taylor took time out of her busy shooting schedule to attend the FOX Summer TCA party last weekend!
Looks like someone made it out of Rosewood!
Our own Lesley Fera (also Pretty Little Liars star) was taking a turn on CBS and Kevin Williamson’s new specialized crime drama, Stalker this month. The show stars Maggie Q and Dylan McDermott as elite members of the TMU division of the LAPD, investigating all kinds of stalking cases. Will Lesley be a stalker or a stalkee!? You’ll have to tune in to find out! The show premieres on October 1 2014. We’ll share more about her episode when we can.
Our own Patricia Steffy attends the Unity Concert! See if you can spot her when the episode airs next week!
The secret is out! On the season finale of Parks and Recreation, Pawnee has the most kick-ass concert they’ve delivered thus far. In the name of unity, Letters to Cleo’s Kay Hanley, The Decemberists, Ginuwine, and Andy Dwyer himself all take the stage. As you can see, Ben Wyatt is a big fan of at least one of those. And isn’t it about time the show paid off that Ginuwine joke!?
The episode entitled “Moving Up” airs on NBC on April 24th at the special time of 8 p.m.
Leslie (Amy Poehler), Ben (Adam Scott), and Andy (Chris Pratt) head to San Francisco for a National Parks Conference. Tom (Aziz Ansari) opens his restaurant, Ron (Nick Offerman) has another run-in with his ex-wife Tammy 2 (Special Guest Megan Mullally), Andy lives a rock and roll fantasy, and Leslie makes a huge decision about her future. Ben also has fun with board games.
A web series about the “only in LA” moments of living in this crazy town? That is definitely right up our alley, and in many ways, it should go hand in hand with Kate’s own, albeit more specific, experiences. Check out this short series and consider helping them make season two a reality.
Remember when we told you about Kris Polaha’s indie movie Produce? The movie premiered in Dallas last week and the trailer has been posted for all now. Check it out!
The CW President Mark Pedowitz claimed he was looking at his online series through the CW Seed as potential pilots for the network itself.
